  • Ion Generator: Air ionizer improves indoor air quality (IAQ) by generating hydrogen oxygen ions that eliminate biological contaminants that threat your health, such as viruses, bacteria and mold.
  • Carbon Filter: is made of active carbon and electrostatic fiber that eliminates certain kinds of odors such as cigarette smoke, pet odors, other unpleasant odors and deactivates harmful chemical gases. Electrostatic fiber filter traps small particles such as dust and pet fur from the air stream to prevent allergic reactions.
  • Self-Cleaning: The unit operates at low fan speed and the condensate water washes away the dust from the evaporator golden, hydrophilic fins, then air dries the evaporator. The whole process cleans the indoor unit coil and prevents the breeding of bacteria and mildew growth.
  • Economy / Sleep Operation: In this function the temperature increases (cooling) or decreases (heating) automatically by 2º F per hour for two hours then stays steady for the next 5 hours, and after that it will switch off. This feature can maintain the most comfortable temperature and save more energy.
  • Follow Me: When activated the remote control built-in temperature sensor can sense its surrounding temperature and transmit the signal back to the indoor unit at 3 minute intervals and can adjust the airflow volume and temperature accordingly to provide maximum comfort and save energy at the same time.

Product Description

Inverter Technology A DC Inverter Air Conditioner cools and heats even when the outside temperature falls to 5º F (-15º C). Klimaire DC Inverter Air Conditioners use the ultimate cooling and heating technology of the HVAC field. Different frequencies supplied to the compressor will result in different running speeds. WHAT IS A DC INVERTER? In a DC Inverter Air Conditioner the Alternating Current (AC) is converted to Direct Current (DC) then the Direct Current is converted back to Alternating Current at any required voltage and frequency. As known, the current supplied through the wall outlet has a fixed frequency which is 60 Hertz. Different frequencies supplied to the compressor will result in it running at different speeds. Klimaire Inverter control systems use Pulse Amplitude Modulation (PAM) that is the most advanced and energy efficient method of inverting current. DC inverter air conditioners use special compressors, which speed can be changed by increasing or decreasing the frequency of the supplied power. Unlike conventional split Air Conditioners/Heat Pumps which cycle between on and off repeatedly to maintain the room temperature at a desired level, causing the compressor to draw a tremendous quantity of energy each time is starts up; the DC Inverter control system will monitor the room temperature and adjust the compressor speed automatically allowing for continuous environment comfort. · Ionizer - The air ionizer improves indoor air quality (IAQ) producing active hydrogen oxygen ions that eliminate bacteria, viruses, and other harmful agents in the conditioned air. Anions are always found in the forest or near waterfall; these can stimulate blood circulation and help to prevent some respiratory illnesses so improving the lung function. Coverage Area: Up to 1000 sq. ft. Energy Star *Exceeds strict energy efficiency guidelines set by the US EPA. *Saving energy, saves money to the user and protects the environment. *User may qualify for credits.

[Note -I purchased this exact unit last month but not on Amazon, so this review is just about the unit, not the vendor].

Last week I completed installation in my 2-car attached garage, which is in the process of being purposed as a wood shop. Mine is a typical tract-home attached garage, about 21 x 22, roughly 450 sq ft, located in Northern Virginia. The back and side walls are insulated as is the attic and I have a single garage door with insulated foam core. I installed the indoor component of the split on the back wall with the compressor directly behind it on the outside.

First the positive - I gave it 5 stars for functionality. There are a couple of "cons" below but I'm so thrilled by how it works, the pros (for me) totally outweigh them.
I love this unit, did I say that??. While I may be the butt of a few jokes in the neighborhood... it is AWESOME to have air conditioning in the garage!! This weekend it was in the 90s and humid and my garage was, get this -- 68 degrees!! I wont run it down to 68 normally but I wanted to see if it could do it.. and it was no problem. Yesterday my wife was doing yard work and opened the garage door several times. I was amazed! Once the temp gets near the target setting, the unit backs off to a (very) quiet level just maintaining. The wife opens the big door to get the mower and for 4-5 minutes the door is open. When she leaves, I notice the Klimaire automatically kick it up to make it up. I was working in the middle of my garage and while I obviously felt the heat encroaching when the door was opened, because of the automatic speed increase, I could also feel the cold air blowing from the back and it never got uncomfortable in the middle of the garage. Once the door was closed it only took a few minutes to recover.

Hey, Guys. I bought two units, the KSIM009-H219 and the KSIM018-H217. Research led me directly to the Klimaire distributor in Miami (I'm in Jacksonville) where they responded to my call for info. I bought directly from the dist where they cut me a break on the shipping for the two. Ordered on Thursday, they shipped on Monday SAIA freight and arrived in Jacksonville the next day where I picked them up at the terminal. Packaging was spot on, no issues.

Installed myself, but I'm no stranger to mechanical stuff. I think an installation of this sort for a newbie would be a challenge since there's so many disciplines involved. The biggest challenge is working with the supplied lineset and making sure you don't damage it or run short since you don't want to modify the length. Careful planning always pays off here. After the typical hookup, I vacuumed the lines for about two hours on both units, opened the liquid line a bit to charge the vacuumed lines and evap up to atmospheric pressure, opened both packing valves and buttoned everything up.

At this point checked for leaks with a leak detector solution and found I had leaks on three out of four connections. Some serious tightening solved those problems and I'd say that was the most surprising, it takes more than you'd think it would. I worked with a plumber for several years as a young pup and the answer to "how tight should this be?" was "till it stops leaking."

After flipping the breaker on the disconnects I started each system and have simply been amazed at how quiet and seemingly efficient these units are. I think you could run them both on power from a hamster in a wheel. Matter of fact, I did connect both of these units to my gen-set so we'll have cooling in those two rooms when the storm hits.

I just purchased a KSIM018-H217 A Klimaire 18kbtu
220 volt D.C inverter heat pump and air conditioning unit from HeatandCool.com
It's been great I must say . I stay in Green View, Ca and we get some extreme heat,
Over here and probably one month of cold temperatures. But I have a living area
That is around 750 square feet and my unit heats and cools this space with no trouble
at all . Even with my family coming over which is most of the time and we usually end
up in the living room we're able to sit there comfortably. Most of the times we might
even need jackets. Another thing is that my unit is extremely silent and that's a major
plus for me. I'm very pleased with this unit and the klimaire brand and I would recommend
klimaire products to all my friends and family. Thanks for making such a great product
